RØDE Microphones has launched the Lavalier GO. It’s a lavalier mic that pairs with the RØDE Wireless GO and 3.5mm TRS microphone input recording devices.
According to RØDE, the Wireless GO is the “world’s smallest and most versatile wireless microphone system.” How light is it? The transmitter and receiver weight comes out to be 31 grams each. The system looks very compact, but still features an omnidirectional mic built into the transmitter. This new microphone adds flexibility to the Wireless GO system.
Overview of the RØDE Lavalier GO
- Support for 3.5mm TRS jack
- Omnidirectional condenser capsule
- Kevlar reinforced cable
- Designed to work with RØDE Wireless GO

The mic connects via 3.5mm TRS jack and can be used with any 3.5mm TRS equipped recording device. It is even compatible with smartphones with RRS inputs using the RØDE SC4 adapter. Filmmakers, vloggers and journalists will see use out of the Lavalier GO.
The Lavalier GO features a 4.5mm omnidirectional microphone capsule, which should allow for “crystal clear audio in all environments,” says RØDE.
